Breanna González is an Environmental Policy Coordinator based in Denver, Colorado, the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary lands of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe peoples. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Transborder/Chicano Development and Health and a Bachelor's degree in Global Studies from Arizona State University, as well as a Master's degree in Critical and Culturally Relevant Pedagogy from the University of Colorado Denver.
Currently, Breanna works in environmental policy with Hispanics Enjoying Camping, Hunting, and the Outdoors (HECHO). She was inspired to pivot to this career after being an educator in the environmental frontline communities of Denver.
Before her work in the environmental and education sectors, Breanna served as a public health specialist with the Peace Corps in Cajamarca, Peru. It was here that she discovered her love for the outdoors, nature, and public lands, and how the Latinx culture greatly integrates with that love. As a city kid from the greater Los Angeles area, she had never seen Latinx culture and outdoor activities intertwined in this way.
Breanna's everyday goal is to bridge the gap between Latinx immigrant children and their relationship with Mother Earth from a decolonial perspective. She is heavily involved in the Denver Latinx community, and serves on the Board for New Treks and as a Facilitator for Escaladores Unidos. When she's not advocating for environmental and outdoor equity, Breanna enjoys climbing with her friends, watching the Los Angeles Dodgers, and eagerly anticipating Halloween.
